I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in The Looking Spoon. This month marks one year since I launched the blog in its present form. (It used to be on Blogger before I decided to host it myself, see the posts from the 2008 archive, I warn you though my current work is a lot better)
I do this because I’m passionate about what is happening in this world, and I like to make people laugh. It really is that simple.
I also got tired of hearing how conservatives have no sense of humor and they don’t know how to be funny. I hope you all have found that The Looking Spoon puts truth to that lie.
In the process of doing this I’ve found that not only does The Looking Spoon shed light on conservative humor, but there are others out there who do just as good, if not better, job at making us laugh at liberals. If you want to see them check out The List.
Every month I continue to be amazed at the growth of traffic the site gets, and I hope the second year will be just as successful as the first. Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to pay attention to what this blog has to say. Your support here and on the social networks truly keeps me motivated to keep trying and going after full-time work and other family and life obligations.
Now that I'm done with the mushy stuff its back to work.
I know I'm not the first to come up with this idea....but lets have some fun with captions and liberals! Leave a comment below as to what you think is going on here. I did my own take on what they may have been saying, which you can see by rolling over the numbers below (preferably in order).
Joe Klein of Time magazine on seditious conservatives...
Glenn Beck's response
It's too bad Joe couldn't manage to write on that napkin what a "dictionary monkey" is. If Klein is so adept at reading dictionary definitions you would think he could have taken even 5 seconds to identify an actual statement of sedition from either Palin or Beck. We know Chris Matthews isn't going to ask him for one, at this point the concept of Hardball only works for him when hes talking about or looking at shirtless pictures of Obama.
The only silver lining in this is...nobody freakin' heard it. Morons like Klein go on shows hosted by wannabe has-beens like Chris Matthews because their own audience is dropping faster than Matthews's Obamatons. The only reason anyone even knows about it is because talk radio and the blogosphere (guilty as charged) are crying about it. We can't help it...societal stupidity just can't go unchallenged.
Ronald Reagan only said "freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction" because Mike Judge's movie Idiocracy hadn't yet been invented by Joe Klein's of today.Add a comment
This is going to be totally non-political and off subject of The Looking Spoon's mission, but its something fun I wanted to share.
Seeing that today is Earth Day and considering all the earthquakes all over the world along with the volcano in Iceland I was reminded of an OLD cartoon I drew YEARS ago before I started getting fancy with my computer pen tablet and Photoshop...
There was a time where I only wanted to do gag cartoons like this one, but there are more important things to work on now.Add a comment
Now meet Obamaton, because
somebody something has to support Obama as his approval rating continues to plummet.
I'll figure out other things to do with him. YES YOU CAN follow the little guy on Twitter by clicking here.

I think I have an idea about where the left is coming from in its latest strain of character assassination the Tea Party has had to endure lately...
I'm obviously kidding around with regards to this picture...it has never been proven that liberals have crap for brains....
I know its kind of gross, but I'll go there because cartoonish poo isn't nearly as disgusting as the media's double standard on the Tea Party movement against the Federal government's liberal agenda that seems to be slowly lurching into Leftist-land.
You'll never see an editorial accusing bandanna clad black shirted thugs smashing windows at economic summits and screaming platitudes about corporate greed, war for profit, and their GOP lapdogs (in their opinion) as being William Ayers's apprentices, but the media has no problem linking house-wives with signs demanding that government get a grip on spending to the likes of Timothy McVeigh.
Either the left is operating on the insidious motives of stoking the flames of fear and encouragement....
They're just flat out scared stupid by the fact the Tea Party's message is working.
For the record I think its both.Add a comment
Recently, President Obama had a couple of events where he had a chance to
speak read his teleprompter to a bunch of people apparently born yesterday.
Oh it was a hoot, he read that same joke he's been telling for a month now about how he isn't seeing the Armageddon outside his window that conservatives promised when health care deform passed.
Oh it's just so funny! I wonder if after the first day of diagnosis a terminal medical patient that was given months to live would be so glib.
HAHA yeah right doc, MY ASS, I'm gonna die, I feel great and you're just a big fat quack so give me that chemo in a shot glass....I'll....gulp....show you.....
See I still have my hair! Look outside do YOU see Armageddon?!?
Just call me Mr. Right Now 'cuz I only live in the mom-...ulp...barfing now...but it's not the chemo, I'm just drunk on arrogance.
Speaking around the same time as the tax day Tea Party rallies Obama had this to say about those rallies (the video I found has been juxtaposed with a comment rising GOP star Paul Ryan.
So Barack thinks we should be thanking him....people who opt to give out trail mix instead of candy on Halloween expect a thank you too.
Even though I did indeed receive some BS $400 credit along with "95% of working families," (rich people don't work, apparently they just crap money like they're human ATM's). Now all I have to do now is figure out how that money going unspent on Uncle Barack is supposed to help me.
Is he still going to expect a thank you when his trillion dollar deficit exacerbating policies, not counting ObamaCare, will demand tax hikes for more than just the rich?
I've thought about this a bit and wondered if Obama even remotely has a point. Does he deserve thanks? After some thought I came up with a few reasons we can try to utter the word "thanks" a few times before we start to produce more vomit than a bulimia convention:
Thank you President Obama for making it cool to say, "I make teleprompters."
Thank you for bowing to world leaders in a show of humility and defying those who thought that position should be reserved for public restrooms and pornos.
Thank you for making political logos cool again, swastika ruined it for everyone for so long that they almost went the way of the 19th century corset wearing dodo bird working for the pony express.
Thank you for reminding us all that a generation after the end of the Cold War "socialism" is still a four letter word.
Also, thank you for letting Biden know "four letter word" is just an expression that can be used on any word as a euphamism for his favorite word...and he can stop trying to count the letters in
socialism soshallizm because the math wont work out anyway.
Thank you for a tagline that is easy to rhyme and therefore easy to mock. It would've been a lot harder if you used "orange," which for you it would've made just as much sense as using "hope" and "change."
Finally, for a while with President Bush we all thought government spending couldn't possibly get worse if he had literally taken all of our money and just threw it into some volcano in Ice...land.....huh......Well anyway, thank you Mr. President for making trillion the new billion.
I'm sure there are more reasons to thank the president, but all this thinking about it is giving me a headache...so thanks a lot for that too President Obama.Add a comment
When we deny Him
We self prevent
the truths that are
who founded U.S.
that the endowment of such
comes only from
If our Lord is
which way then
does the wind blow
Choose their hero
From the spiritual limbo
Of secularism's superior sanctimony
Until He has to leave the stage because we can't hear a single word He is saying.
So who then
will be the creator
of unalienable rights
with divine gusto?
h no...Add a comment
